It has been reported that J. Cole was replacing The Weeknd at the Meadows Festival in New York City, this is false. Both artists are scheduled to perform.
Earlier this week, festival organizers announced that The Weeknd had to drop out of the festival due to “unforeseen scheduling conflicts.” But they bounced back quickly saying that J. Cole would be his replacement.
